Growing Families

In home training customized to your needs.

Raising children is beautiful and fulfilling, but also come with its challenges, especially with a dog in the mix.

As a Licensed Family Paws Parent Educator, we are trained in the dynamics between dogs and children. Our goal is to help prepare your dog for the arrival of your baby and support you and your dog as your child grows and progresses through their milestones. We aim to build the relationship between your dog and child as they grow.

Every family’s needs and challenges are unique. That is why I offer several options for you to choose what level of support you would like to receive.

Growing Families Support Program

Experience has shown that ongoing support through developmental stages is incredibly helpful for families and their dogs. Babies grow and change so much in their first years and it is important to update and adapt recommendations through these changes.

This is why I offer Support for Success options where you choose the length of time to receive support. This model has provided many families with peace of mind as they move through this constantly changing time in their baby’s development. I aim to support you in a variety of ways as your family grows and changes by providing customized materials and techniques for your unique situation.

Compared to individual consultations (1.5 hours for $250 each), Support for Success packages help to increase safety and decrease stress while providing additional services and value.
